Abstract : The influence of eccentricity of loading on the vibrations and buckling of stringer-stiffened shells is studied. An established nonlinear theory, which takes into account nonlinear prebuckling is applied and the predictions are compared with experimental results. Two families of shells, one heavily stiffened and the other moderately stiffened, were tested. In each family there are three identical shells each with different eccentricity of loading. In all cases different in-plane boundary conditions are considered and correlated with experimental results.
